Job Description

Your New Role
As the Project Services Information Communication and Technology (ICT) Engineering Team Leader you will be responsible for managing a team of multi-disciplined ICT engineers to design, build and execute technical ICT solutions through the project delivery lifecycle.
You will support the ICT Engineering Manager in resource planning, establishing and maintaining design and delivery baselines and attending formal and informal engineering reviews for complex technical ICT solutions within the Centralised Processing environments.

Your team management responsibilities include:
  • setting team and individual staff deliverables in partnership with the Engineering Manager;
  • managing the performance cycle by providing timely feedback, mentoring and coaching;
  • overseeing work flows and leveraging support from other teams where necessary;
  • acting as the first point of contact for your team for matters including annual leave, resource planning, career planning and training requests;
  • collaborating with other technical Team Leads, Project Managers and internal stakeholders to ensure the team is on track to achieve engineering goals.

Your technical responsibilities will include:
  • In partnership with the Engineering Manager, manage engineering resources to meet the dynamic project delivery needs of the Project Services department within the Defence Centralised Process (CP) environments.

As the ICT Engineering Team Leader you will have considerable experience managing engineering teams who deliver ICT solutions within a defence environment. Your experience has given you strong management skills, including resource management, but also a passion for coaching and development with a view to building high performing teams. You are 'au fait' with defence technical regulations frameworks and can apply a broad range of technologies including, but not limited to end user computing, applications, databases, virtualisation, hardware and software, infrastructure systems, high availability (HA) and disaster recovery (DR) solutions.
You will hold a Bachelor degree or equivalent industry experience in engineering or a related discipline. Already hold a Baseline security clearance and have the ability to obtain NV1 or higher.

The following are highly regarded:
  • Familiar working within Defence Technical Regulation frameworks.
